Insurance Card Scan

This document explains how to enable Insurance Card Scan in the verification flow and Passbase API

Overview

Add an Insurance Card scan to your workflow through the Passbase dashboard to either verify patients or to use as a secondary piece of ID for identity verification.

An Insurance Card is one of the Additional Checks that you can use in a Customer Identification Program (CIP) or to know your customer (KYC). It may also be required for health insurance coverage. In order to help companies cater to customers globally, Passbase collects the origin country and nationality of the Insurance Card as well.

If you are a business operating in the US, you can also select the Insurance Card (US) option instead.

Enable Insurance Card Scan

Within the customization additional checks page, you can enable the Insurance Card Scan by dragging the Insurance Card Scan check to the Live Version section. Click the Publish Changes button when complete. Your users will now be prompted to scan the front and back of their Insurance Card as the final step of the verification flow.

Insurance Card Scan API Response

The Insurance Card data for each Verification is accessible using the below Passbase API endpoints. You can find more information about the endpoints in our API explorer, and you can use one of our server-side libraries to interact with the Passbase API.

// List all identities
